“More Power” added something different to the Knebworth Park sets, its tender mood and gospel fervour heightened by the pure feeling expressed by Liam’s vocal delivery as well as the support of a choir. It was universally acclaimed as a highlight of the show in the reviews that followed, inspiring glowing comparisons with classic moments from The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd.
The original version of the song quickly became a fan favourite as the opening track to the “C’MON YOU KNOW” album, which went straight to #1 and became the fourth chart-topping record of Liam’s solo career.
The track is accompanied by a video which captures the immense scale and electrifying atmosphere of the Knebworth Park shows. Documenting the build-up and preparation ahead of the shows, its mood is best captured by the long shots of the sold-out, 85,000-strong audience, with phones lit up in the air as far as the eye can see.
Liam and his band are on fiery form throughout the ‘Knebworth 22’, blazing through the likes of “Shockwave” and “Everything’s Electric” with a full-throttle intensity.
Also providing the accompaniment for the more reflective side of Liam’s voice to standout on more poignant moments such as “Once” and “Slide Away”. Collectively, ‘Knebworth 22’ is a must-have live album for any fan who wants to relive the experience.
